 Chris Squire - Fish Out Of Water - HMV
Yes-like in every possible aspect, Chris Squire's Fish out of Water is an album that's typical of his band's progressive formula: softened keyboard extensions a la Patrick Moraz, steady yet atmospheric percussion work from Bill Bruford, and a smattering of flute and saxophone that accompanies a small orchestra, which includes effective horn and harp work.
Squire's guitar playing is standard, coming to life the most on Silently Falling and Lucky Seven, with the former boosted by a rather dazzling synthesizer solo from Moraz.
Squire even sounds like Jon Anderson, especially on Hold out Your Hand, and each of the song's melodies cater to Squire's vocal ascent.

  Progressive Rock News: Chris Squire Leaves The Syn
It only seems like yesterday that Chris Squire and Steve Nardelli announced that they were to reform The Syn with a new album and a follow-up tour.
The announcement that Chris Squire is leaving The Syn follows a recent press statement that the band have postponed their up-comming "Syndestructible" tour of the UK, with no date specified as to when the tour has been rescheduled for, nor a reason for its cancellation.
It would appear from today's announcement that the reason for postponement is in fact that Squire is no longer involved with the band, and as such they are a bassist short.

Chris took the path that I find most to my liking, and released what I believe is the best of the bunch, though I will admit to a love of Wakeman’s and Moraz’s first solo recordings as well.
Chris is not only a quite accomplished lead vocalist, but is usually the arranger of Yes’s vocals.
Chris misses no opportunities on this one either, and his bass line is powerful and could likely carry the song by itself.

 CHRIS SQUIRE Fish Out Of Water review by morpheusdraven   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Instead, Squire delivers a merciful surprise that is one of the most balanced prog-rock albums I've ever heard, with countless amazing moments that cover the spectrum from orchestral bombast to straight out jazz-like jamming and improvisation, all anchored by some of the smartest songwriting ever to emerge from the Yes camp.
Squire has help, of course, in the peerless Bill Bruford and the underrated Patrick Moraz, as well as common sessionmen Mel Collins and Jimmy Hastings, among others.
So its clear that Squire allied himself with people as smart and musically literate as he, and the result is an amazingly authentic album that sacrifices none of prog's complexity while allowing it to fundamentally explore other genres in a way that doesn't feel trite and condescending.

 Chris Squire Page
Chris Squire's 'Fish out of Water' and Pat Moraz' i are the only two of the Yes albums to feature the epic long form songwriting style of Yes.
Squire's bass is strong, but not too strong or overbearing (in other words, sure there's too much bass, but it's not like 'The Fish' with layers of bass, just one bass guitar).
Squire's vocals surprisingly good, and if I didn't know this was an ex Yes (with that guy Jon on vocals) member's album, I would think this guy could sing lead vocals for Yes.

Chris Squire IS the keeper of the flame, the soldier who wouldn't give up and the fighter who wouldn't go down.
YES is the BEST way for Chris to get exposure before everything implodes (Im not saying its going to, Im just saying.) And I know for a fact, from his own facial expressions and his whole demeanor when he spoke to me about it was that he is MOST excited about Conspiracy right now.
Chris and Jon, maybe this is the key to the fascination of Yes.

 FISH OUT OF WATER   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Chris Squire’s first solo album chases the same butterflies with orchestral accompaniment, longwinded concepts stretching the credibility of a patchwork sail and a voice that invites (and suffers by) comparison to Jon Anderson.
Squire plays bass and 12-string electric guitar, opting to thrust the bass into a lead role and thus exposing it as a poor substitute for Steve Howe’s leaping leads.
Like Howe’s Beginnings, Squire throws a lot of ideas at the listener on Fish; some of it sticks, some of it stinks, and all of it suggests that Squire’s muse is better served within the confines of Yes.

 Amazon.com: Fish out of Water: Music: Chris Squire   (Site not responding. Last check: )
It was known that Chris Squire was a excellent bass player & yes he was a monster with his 1965 Rickenbacker Bass through the Marshalls at his arsenal.
Squire's only work as a soloist, anyway, is absolutely remarkable for the original melodic inspiration, for the impressive, wide and complex composition (in full 'sympho-prog-rock style')and for the exquisite arrangements with the excellent contribution of Bill Bruford's drums, Andrew Pryce-Jackman, Patrick Moraz and Barry Rose's keyboards, Mel Collins and Jimmy Hastings'winds.
In 'Fish Out Of Water' Squire enjoys again, after three years, the contribution of Bruford's drums: together they had been the protagonists of the years 1969 to 1972, one of the best periods of a 36 year old artistic and musical career for the 'Yes'.
